6:32 pm
>> here is the lineup tonight on cbs. it is all tonight, only cbs. back at tpc deer run. another memorable finish. >> yes. >> at the john deere classic. >> i was just thinking one of the things that may be a factor here for zach johnson, and by no means is it a derogatoryy comment against mike bender, his coach. mike is in an unusual position. caddying for his man in a playoff with a chance to win. i think zach is missing damon green, his regular caddie on the bag here. mike is doing a great job. he has his man to this point. but i definitely think it would be a calming influence having the calm damon green on the bag.
6:33 pm
he is playing in the u.s. senior open this week is damon green. a very accomplished player. he is in his early 50s. >> troy matteson trying to win for the third time on the pga tour. he has already punched his ticket for the open championship. he will be in the field for the first time next week. >> i can tell you that i just looked it up. damon finished tied for 17th in the tournament this week in the senior event. that is a very good finish. >> u.s. senior open. it was a big one. >> well, to be honest there is not much to choose from. zach has a slightly easier angle
6:34 pm
coming across the water. he has an even, level lie. ball line is clean. 194 yards. >> i would suggest a good, solid 6-iron with draw into the right side of the green, david. >> yeah. the center of the green as he looks at it. that is a good looking shot. needs to kick to the left. >> beautiful. spectacular shot. >> my goodness, what a shot. >> he does not know how close that is. >> truly remarkable. >> that was 6-iron. unbelievable.
6:35 pm
now the pressure is on. troy knows he must make bird tow stay in the playoff. 7-iron from 190. >> me must give himself a chance. >> pretty good swing. >> but that checked up and it will end up well short. zach johnson with a brilliant effort from the fairway bunker. >> beautiful, full swing. almost holes it.
6:36 pm
>> and he will remember this shot for the rest of his career if he goes on to win. he has put so much of his heart into this tournament. now he is on the cusp of one of the biggest victories in his life. >> you are thinking why he doesn't do that the first time around. that would have saved a bit of time. >> great ovation from the fans who came out to cheer on steve stricker and zach. they sure have their money's worth. you know he has some emotion racing through him right now.
6:37 pm
it might be a regular stop for some on the pga tour, but not for this man. >> guess you could tell that first time around in regulation. he definitely had strong emotions showing then as well. troy matteson holed that 60 footer for eagle at 17. then a brilliant six-footer for par to take it to the playoff. now troy needs to hole this. >> this would be his ninth win on the pga tour, runner-up
6:38 pm
finish and a tie for third over the last three years for zach johnson. >> that mark might be right on the line of troy matteson's putt. i think he will remember this time to mark it back if he has to mark it after what happened at the crowne plaza. it certainly looked like it was right on the line. it has to be close. >> yeah. i think it is. >> it is only a foot from the hole. >> yeah. not even. i think his line is probably just inside of it. if it does happen to hit it, it is as good of chance to help it. >> matteson knows that he has to make this.
6:39 pm
>> didn't make it. that is always a bad feeling. >> to come up short. but it has been a great week for troy matteson. he will be disappointed he did not win it. but he will get a bunch of fedex cup point standings and he will be on the charter to play in the open championship. >> solid effort today. strong finish. this is huge for zach johnson. it will feel like a major for him. a local boy in his ninth victory. >> and he has done it. >> with his coach, mike bender, on the bad. zach johnson takes his hometown event. >> the entire midwest set up and
6:40 pm
smiled, just like zach johnson. david. >> thank you, billy. down here with our john deere classic champion, zach. i know there is a major next week this . is one for you and the local community. >> it is. it is. this tournament means a lot to me and my family and it means a lot to the pga tour. they are one of the long time sponsors. more than that i have to at a thanks to my lord and savior jesus christ. >> another amazing finish and an incredible shot into the last. thanks so much. great entertainment. 175 years of john deere. almost as old as this country. there is the little guy. >> there is wyatt who will turn two on the 23rd. and dad did a great job. shot from the fairway bunker on
